Sanju Samson who hit a hundred for Delhi Daredevils against Rising Pune Supergiant said he was lucky to have the guidance of batting legend Rahul Dravid.

Samson made 102 runs from 63 balls at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium. “I am very happy to play this knock and very happy that the team won the match,” Man of the Match Samson said during the presentation ceremony.

“I am blessed to be a part of this team, working with Rahul sir (team mentor) and the rest of the support staff. I am in a very good space of mind and the people here have always backed me and encouraged me.

“I am very keen to finish innings and make my team win matches. I am learning about it and hopefully I will get better in the coming years,” he was quoted as saying in a PTI report.

The 22-year-old also praised teammate Chris Morris who hit 38 off only nine balls. “Morris hit some big ones and Rishabh Pant also batted well. We played a very good match. I enjoyed my fielding and batting today,” Samson added.

Delhi skipper Zaheer Khan added, “We needed that. This team has tremendous potential, we just need to back ourselves. We have some amazing talent, you see Samson batting like that and Morris going at it in the end. It’s just about focusing on our processes.

“We have guys like Rabada and Shami and Jayant who has a Test hundred sitting out. It’s good to look at the bench and see that we have the firepower.”
